This is an animal rights introduction from a philosophical perspective A very scientific rational man s kind of argument Animals have rights for these and these reasons until proven otherwise That s the part about this book I found pretty problematic The debate and he does oh so much like the debate facet if it on whether we should care about or continue contributing to nonhuman animal suffering and exploitation occurs far away and closed off from that very suffering There s an air about this book that just seemed ridiculous to me but I do not come from a philosophy perspective Saying later down the line maybe we will change our minds is to me not an appealing moral position for nonhuman or human rights and I think it is flawed Yes perhaps we may always begin to think differently when provided with new information but repeating it so explicitly over and over seems to place animal rights on unnecessarily shaky foundations Indeed you would never hear ex LGBT activists say give us rights until you can prove cis heterosexuality is godly or whatever or enslaved human people saying give us rights until you find evidence of our inferiority In order for a rights movement to be strong the basis for granting rights is likely already strong making such caveats ridiculous and harmfulFor an alternative view A Breeze Harper wrote a great blog post critiuing how certain types of intellectualism tend to get legitimized over others ie white male human I am probably not this book s target audience as I was already pretty involved in animal rights but still I thought this small book might offer me a few new insights It seemed to be going well at first but when I hit page 60 I decided I was done and threw the book across the room fed up I wish I could describe succinctly exactly what bothered me about this book perhaps my inability to express my feelings in human language means I m not feeling anything at all huh The philosophical tone of the book was just not for me and there were far too many cases of anthropocentrism For example he believes along with the likes of Peter Singer that death harms humans He also makes numerous mentions to the evolutionary hierarchy the organization of the species of the world which oh so conveniently and I m sure coincidentally places humans on top of everyone else even after seemingly critiuing it Most animal rights books I have read have given me a new way of seeing the world this one did not It plays almost a devil s advocate role going through the arguments on why Western humans believe they can exploit and harm nonhuman animals for their interests and I was not satisfied with the strength of this book s rebuttals I think Joan Dunayer s Speciesism would make a far better introduction to animal rights
